Different way of working
Manager of Security, IIS (Former Employee), Annapolis Junction, MDOctober 15, 2014
Pros: a good transition point.
Cons: personal agenda's and short on professionalism
Manage security contracts and business interests at multiple locations, responsible for oversight and the implementing government policies, plans and procedures associated with classified programs within the three intelligence agencies.

I learned about people outside the military.

Management was fair to select few.

Co-workers commitment was lacking – more... in motivation

The hardest part was leaving tasks unfinished.

The first week, I could see all the possibilities – less

A huge company that values its employees
Computer Systems Technologist I (Former Employee), Springfield, VAOctober 9, 2014
Pros: benefits, pay, co workers
Cons: lack of opportunities for furthering ones career path
I really enjoyed working for Raytheon. I have witnessed them time and time again taking care of their employees and their family, and always doing whats best for them. Their human resources department is excellent and their managers are very approachable. The benefits and pay were excellent, however they did not promote advancement in an employees knowledge – more... even when it would directly benefit the job. – less

Fast pace, large defensemindustry company with excellent benefits.
Organizational Effectiveness Consultant (Current Employee), Tucson, AZOctober 6, 2014
Pros: compensation and benefits and ability to flex your work schedule.
Cons: large company, with a lot of physical area to walk each day, lots of government requirements and secuity measures within the company.
Navigating a large company has it challenges and benefits. Many opportunities exist within the company due to the complexity of the work. The most rewarding component is working with some of the most intelligent people in the industry. A solid, well respected company but currently facing the funding challenges all of the defense industry is under. However, – more... it is one of the companies doing the best during this time and that speaks volumes for its reputation. At times, the pace and day to day responsibilities make it difficult to manage work/life balance. The key to success is getting into the right functional organization, having the ability to take on many extra responsibilities, and being flexible. Not all leaders equally developed and good to work under. Overall, the most enjoyable part of my day was the people I worked with and knowing I made a difference in how they did their job. – less

Good benefits and job security
Supply Chain Consultant (Former Employee), Waltham, MAOctober 6, 2014
Pros: enjoyable coworkers; good benefits
Cons: management; lack of recognition
Typical day was pretty monotonous but I found most managers were pretty good about not being micro-managers. We were trusted to get the job done. I learned that you need to network. Management was solid but had a hard time with recognizing good work and effort.
My co-workers were the best part. Trying to figure out what a managers expectations were – more... was the hardest part and the most enjoyable part was being recognized by a peer or superior. – less

Senior Training Specialist (Former Employee), San Angelo, TXOctober 6, 2014
Pros: looks great on your resume`
Cons: will burn you out.
Insufficient training for new employees. Overwhelming amount of inhouse demands and knee jerk management. I questioned, at times, if anyone really knew what my job really entailed.

Summary
Assembly (Former Employee), Andover, MAOctober 1, 2014
Pros: a 10 minute break, a 30 minute break and a 10 minute break
Cons: the lunch is expensive and less than mediocre.
Working for Raytheon Co is a fun experience with great benefits. This company has much to offer. Management is... and a typical day at work is ... Union Stewards are ... Co workers are- well, a lot of them are 15 year + employees...

The hardest part of the job is ...

The most enjoyable part of the job is leaving with a paycheck. Keep your head down, – more... your mouth shut, do your job and you'll be alright.

With all this said(or little said) I would return there for work if called back. – less

Great company that is struggling with new world economy
Program Manager (Former Employee), Fort Wayne, INSeptember 28, 2014
Pros: good pay
Cons: high stress, very poor work/life balance
Can be a great place to learn and grow - but very dependent on location and front line managers. Company currently going through transition with downturn in overall defense industry. Consolidating some places and reducing others. A lot of people worried about future employment. Work/life balance not very good. High pressure to perform. Compensation – more... (pay) is very good. – less
